believe that our monetary system is being pressed up against the wall and this makes us weak. when the economic crisis fully engulfed greece last year brussels was on alert then a bailout treaty brought hope and relief apparently premature spain and portugal joined the club and someone will still be others to come let's release switzerland and norway are not e.u. members they're doing better than any other european country sweden denmark and the czech republic. euro countries and we never hear things about the whole system when it steals all the major powers from states political economic diplomatic and military and give it to brussels and washington is doomed with german chancellor angela merkel saying at least five more years will be needed to recover and it's clear countries like no we will not have a deficit in labor force at least some more decades greif an option r t from no way
germany and france. stay with our coverage of the e.u. mega strike as workers unite against austerity live updates from our correspondent in madrid and expert analysis on the union's debt plight are coming up later in the day. france has become the first western country to recognize the new syrian rebel coalition as the sole legitimity voice of the syrian people the u.s. and other european nations stop short of doing so saying that foreign based groups should first show it's able to represent syrians inside the country paris also said it would look at arming the rebels policy and now reports. the french president francois hollande said that the syrian opposition coalition would act as a temporary government in the future and he said that it would be the tosca of the
syrian opposition to now establish a transitional government and earlier in the week six gulf states recognize the opposition coalition which we could tolerate foreign minister saying that this recognition now removed obstacles to the securing of weapons to the syrian opposition it is important to make a distinct parallel with what we've seeing back on the tenth of march two thousand and eleven we saw the same scenario unfolding when france was the first country to recognize the transitional national council which was essentially the opposition fighters in libya and this is what we witnessing this parallel situation now in syria what happened in libya and following that french recognition back in libya this set the pavement for international recognition and ultimately lead to foreign forces intervening in that country the arab league which is arguably the most important body in the arab world has given a hesitant welcome to this opposition coalition it has however stopped short of recognizing it as the legitimate voice of the syrian people and then you have
members of the arab league such as iraq and lebanon that have not fully given their support to opposition fighters in their attempt to topple the syrian president bashar assad there are a number of questions and concerns still outstanding not least among them the whole question of the supply of weapons the question of foreign intervention and also the question of who makes up this opposition coalition it has for days if not weeks now been fractured by internal bickering it is essentially a patchwork of organizations and people that have very different political and religious backgrounds and affiliations so many people are asking well if in fact it is effective and how effective its connections and its ties are with the syrian opposition that is active inside syria. france's full endorsement of the syrian opposition unity block comes amid fears that there's a growing number of extremists fighting on the side of the rebels and nasri from the free syrian army the military branch of the opposition told us their commanders are not always in total control of competence. the free syrian army is not
a regular army but the soldiers of the revolution some troops claim to be part of the f.s.a. but at the same time do not follow orders killings take place but as we are in a revolution we cannot control such events certainly there are some extremists some guns and some who want to take advantage of the. the new syrian rebel coalition was formed following criticism and intense pressure from the u.s. and some arab states and dr ali mohamed at the same chief of the syria tribune news website questions just how much it reflects the interests of the syrian people it's very surprising that they are recognizing a coalition that was on the request of hillary clinton as a result of the syrian people and this is this doesn't make sense to me as a syrian and it doesn't make sense politically even the first thing they said more workers more work and that's what we want and more things are not in favor of the syrian people the syrian people are being killed with this we're. told depends on
the cancellation of their words and they show they are supplying. money to the. local proxies we're spending money so he will spend the money he was hosting the girls and arming them training them. this was the how it was to measure the western powers of the of the france and the e.u. are being selective in applying the law. not only that it breaks the embargo but also they would be arming some of the extremist groups is this legal in france one of its own it is possible that some countries will try to go through history that would be in scenario but seriously preventive yeah the. biggest killing that would happen in the middle east is beyond anybody's probably if they decide to go. until ahead here this hour on our see how private passions at the pentagon have caused a very public humiliation look at how a decorated u.s. army general who took over from david petraeus as commander in afghanistan has been

this is as he welcome back the sex scandal that shocked america and led to the downfall of cia chief david petraeus has now also dragged in the country's top commander in afghanistan the story involving two of the country's most influential military leaders could hardly come at a worse time and it's unfolding just after barack obama won his second term in office while u.s. troops are struggling in afghanistan and she's get a check out looks now at the twists and turns in the unraveling saga. this scandal is just getting worse and reminds more of a t.v. drama possibly with many episodes the latest episode of the investigation into the affair between former cia director general petraeus and his biographer is the revelation of another extramarital affair now between the top american and nato commander in afghanistan general john allen and
a woman named jewel kelley the very woman who officials say general petraeus is mistress paula broadwell saw as a rival for her affections with general petraeus and wrote threatening e-mails to dead jill kelley was the woman who opened this can of worms when she went to the f.b.i. in the first place and asked them to investigate the harassing anonymous e-mails that she'd been receiving the investigation led to paula broadwell's mailbox and apparently her mailbox revealed her affair with the former cia director a few words about jill kelley a mother of three a housewife living in florida they've apparently been friends with the patrol is this fool for years and she turned out to be nothing most intelligent woman because when she asked the f.b.i. to look into the e-mails that she'd been receiving she somehow forgot that her own mailbox was also full of quote unquote inappropriate e-mails from the commander of u.s. forces in afghanistan general john allen also a married official said there were somewhere from twenty to thirty thousand pages
of those e-mails of course they did not reveal the content of those e-mails they just said there was inappropriate communication between the two this may sound like a huge manyfold family drama but it's more serious than that and a military lawyer adultery can be a crime and punishment can be time in prison although general allen will remain the commander of getting sent defense secretary panetta said that he had asked president obama to delay the general's nomination to be the commander of american forces in europe and the supreme allied commander of nato so john allen would be the third. began to spend general who fell from grace so abruptly and so shockingly too many first it was general stanley mcchrystal resigned when a magazine quoted him saying unflattering things about the administration and then general petraeus over a woman i know general john allen story of the biggest names in the war in
